Our vision is an integrated analytical systems architecture that enables life insurers to transform and thrive in a challenging marketplace. Solutions for Life is our vision realised — an interconnected portfolio of software, technology and consulting services that provides an end-to-end solution to the risk and actuarial reporting process. It is made up of four key components:
We believe that you need flexibility in choosing your software tools, building on components already in place and selecting best of breed solutions where existing systems are not fit for purpose or where gaps exist.
We provide market-leading tools specifically designed to support your end-to-end reporting needs, using a modular system to facilitate a best of breed approach, enabling you to leverage the investment in tools that you have already made.
Infrastructure options have evolved. The evolution started by moving from desktop to data centre, but now the data centre is moving into the cloud.
Solutions for Life infrastructure options include:
Microsoft HPC: access to a fixed, on-premise, high-performance computing (HPC) grid for distributing model calculations across calculation cores in a physical data centre
Microsoft Azure: provides fully scalable, on-demand access to compute resource in conjunction with a Microsoft Azure Cloud subscription
Willis Towers Watson vGrid: fully scalable, on-demand access to compute resource, delivered as a fully outsourced SaaS by Willis Towers Watson
Willis Towers Watson vPlace: an online workspace to host, run and manage Willis Towers Watson’s suite of analytical and modelling software in the cloud for reduced IT complexity and optimal software performance. Delivered as a fully outsourced SaaS by Willis Towers Watson
A complete solution requires a level of integration and automation to orchestrate the end-to-end reporting process and should be subject to mandatory levels of governance. Only then can genuine efficiencies and new capabilities be delivered to provide an assurance around analytics that can truly drive business decisions.
In response to this issue, we developed Unify — an enterprise risk and actuarial systems integration platform. Unify transforms financial modelling and reporting processes through a comprehensive integration, automated process management and governance solution.
Our world-class consulting services inform our tools, meaning they continue to be leading-edge and remain at the forefront of the insurance industry's latest thinking.
As new market challenges arise, our services have expanded to ensure our solutions continue to meet your needs. We go beyond traditional actuarial services, encompassing IT integration and SaaS, to bring you an innovative solution to your risk technology demands.
